Post-Race Test

The 2022 Marrakesh E-Prix, formally known as the 2022 ABB Formula E Marrakesh E-Prix is set to be the tenth round of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, staged at the Circuit Moulay El Hassan in Agdal, Marrakesh, Morocco, on 2 July 2022.[1] The race would be the first to be staged at the Marrakesh circuit since 2020, after the Marrakesh E-Prix was drafted in to replace the cancelled Vancouver E-Prix midway through the eighth FE season.[1]

Background

A month after the inaugural Jakarta E-Prix the 2021/22 Formula E field arrived at the Circuit Moulay El Hassan in the Agdal district of Marrakesh, Morocco, for the tenth race of the campaign.[1] It had been more than two years since the Series had last visited the historic Moroccon capital, after the city had been dropped from both the 2020/21 and the provisional 2021/22 calendars.[1][2] The reason for its reinstatement to the FE calendar had been due to the cancellation of the Vancouver E-Prix, after the promoters of the event failed to secure the required permits to actually host the race in the Canadian city.[3]

The Circuit Moulay El Hassan itself was unchanged since the Series' last visit in 2020, with the Attack Mode activation zone expected to remain on the outside of turn three.[1]

Jakartan Jostles

Stoffel Vandoorne had retained the lead in the Championship as the second half of the season got underway in Jakarta, the Beligan ace having moved onto 121 points for the season. However, his lead had been slashed by those behind, with Jean-Éric Vergne in second having moved to within five of the Belgian ace, while Edoardo Mortara in third was just seven off as the field arrived in Marrakesh. Mitch Evans then completed the breakaway top four on 109, with the lead quartet having established a 28 point gap to Robin Frijns in fifth.

It had similarly tightened up at the head of the Teams' Championship in the Indonesian capital with Mercedes still leading the way, but having seen their advantage cut to sixteen points. DS Techeetah had been the day's biggest scorers as they reclaimed second with 170 points, with ROKiT Venturi having slipped a point behind them in third. Jaguar Racing then completed the top four on 139, 25 points clear of Porsche Formula E Team in fifth, while Dragon/Penske Autosport had remained at the foot of the table.

Qualifying

Qualifying for the 2022 Marrakesh E-Prix would be conducted according to the knockout format, introduced ahead of season eight.[5] The field would be split into two groups of eleven drivers, based on Championship position, with each group then getting ten minutes on track to complete as many laps as they wished at 220 kW.[5] The fastest eight overall would then proceed to the knockout phase, now running at the maximum 250 kW qualifying mode, with the fastest from group A against the fourth fastest from group B and so on, until four drivers were left.[5]

Those four would move on to the Semi-Final, with the winner of A1/B4 taking on the victor of A2/B3, while the triumphant driver of A3/B2 would take on A4/B1's winner.[5] The winners from those duels would then go into the final, with the winner of that duel taking pole, while the runner-up would start from second, before any grid penalties were applied.[5]
